1) a foreigner, more specifically a white person from the mainland
2) any white person, whether they are locally born or born on the "mainland"
3) "Ha" means breath, "ole" derives from "a'ole" which means no; literally means "no breath" in reference to white foreigners who came to the Hawaiian islands and refused to participate in the ritual greeting involving exchanging breath.

This is used in hawaii to mean someone of caucasian ethnicity. It was first used to describe Capt. Cook and his men. It origianaly means without breath, because they were so pale (don't ask). It is now used in hawaii as a fact or an insult. Mostly an insult. Oh, it is only used on people with white skin.
You stupid haole!

Used as an insulting term torwards anybody with light skin in Hawaii. It has remained as an insult towards white people even since the culture of the islands has been absorbed by the "hip-hop" culture. I'm personally surprised that all of the locals haven't broken down and started calling us crackers yet.
What, you fuckin haole like some cracks?

haole is basically a hawaiian word for foreigner, but used mainly towards the whites.
like many other words, it's derogatory when used that way. you just have to listen to how its used. local haoles are sometimes mistaken for being from the mainland, and i hope they dont' get angered too much from it.
local haoles are usually much tanner than hoales from the mainland.
derogatory: you stupid fuckin' haole, shut your stupid haole mouth, or i will stick your stupid haole foot in it.

non-derogatory: i get chokage haole friends.

haole is a white person in the state of hawaii. most of the haoles in hawaii are tourists. haoles get sunburns, therefore half of them look like fat lobsters. some, (most) people here in hawaii are haole haters, unless they have haole friends. or theyre haole. it all depends.
